Be welcoming. We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities.
Be considerate. Your conduct can affect others in intended and unintended ways, and you should consider possible unintended consequences or external perceptions when making decisions and interacting with others.
Be respectful. Not all of us will agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for poor behavior and poor manners. It’s important to remember that a community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive one.
Be careful in the words that you choose.
